Most plant pots have a drainage hole or two in the bottom to prevent root rot—but this also lets soil escape, often making a mess of your patio or windowsill. Place a coffee filter or two in the bottom of the pot to keep the soil in, and still let the water out. You also can use a coffee filter in the bottom of your kitchen compost pail to prevent a gooey mess. When you’re ready to dump the pot, the filter can go right into the compost pile with the rest of the kitchen scraps.
